Twenty Years On Grant Avenue


April marks our 20th Anniversary! The Book Place is celebrating our BIG milestone with all sorts of specials. 


Additionally, we will extend our hours to our previous pre-pandemic levels; we’re open 10am-4pm (effective April 1, and then Tuesday through Saturday), giving you an additional hour to browse and relax.


During the month, we’ll feature:


  • 50% off our Recent Releases (2021-22 publish dates), March 28 through April 15.  At one-half off the sticker price, you can take home a bestseller for $4.50 or less.

  • History: 50% off History and Military History of all types, April 1-15 

  • Take 50% off our Hardcover and Large Paperback Mysteries all month- they’re only 75¢

  • Classical CDs: operas and sets are 1/2 off the sticker price, limited time, or until they are gone

We’ll continue to replenish, so make plans now to come one or more times during the month.

And check back on this site, because you never know if we’ll add items as we mark 20 years at this location.


Book Donation Info

We are always in need of gently-used materials to keep our selection fresh. We are in particular need of the non-Fiction categories: History, Biography, Military, Science, etc. However, we ask that you check the Donations Guidelines before packing your donation, as many categories have limits (such as, nothing published more than 5 years ago). We accept donations on Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday, 10am-3pm, at our large rollup door behind the store. Pull into the parking lot and look for us, where we’ll quickly screen your donation and provide a receipt if you like. If you are donating more than 2-3 bags/boxes, please phone ahead (415-209-0212) to check if we have room to take your donation, or if you have questions about anything you wish to donate. Thanks in advance!
